Power

The path of supreme conquest. What is it, that makes it so powerful? Is it the thud of the distant explosion? Why does not the shrewd, the sharp or the clever stand a chance in front of pure power? What is with this brute force that makes it so heroic? Why does your God require power to subjugate the worlds?

They say, too much of power is hard to handle. And power corrupts even the most saintly. They say power breeds greed. Many many sayings, advising ordinary men to stay away from this overwhelming energy source. What does it mean to overpower another entity? The path of supreme conquest.

The path of one overwhelming the other, using pure brute strength. Everyone is vying for power, for muscle power, brain power, nuclear power, chemical power, physical power, processing power, feminist power, biological power, man power, human power, electrical power. Well arent you out there toiling away your prime to get some economic power? Why are most inspirational stories about overpowering the evil? Why does overcoming the other give you such a delight? Is it only human to seek this power? Why do you celebrate it? Why isnt the sick and the weak talked about?

I have noticed that every sports game is designed to make one attain victory over the other. Even democracy is designed to have a weaker opposition, just to make fun of it. The lion which defeats every other animal is given the man made throne of the jungle. Every country in the world has fought a war. There has never been a time in the history of the mankind where the whole world was at peace.

Is your country fighting a war out there? Or are they just waiting for the right moment? What can you do if someone attacks you? Isn't is contagious? this war? Just trace back the steps, Kenya, Bosnia, Kargil, Vietnam, Israel's 6 day war, Palestine, Korea, Suez Canal, Falklands, Kashmir, Balkans, Afghanistan, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Chad, Chechnya, Third Reich, Grenada, Cuban, SriLankan/LTTE, Kurushetra, Raavana, Excalibur, Alexander, Napoleon, Genghis Khan, Stalin and you will know that countless people have died in vain to seek this. It is my time now. The path of supreme conquest.

Step aside. Or else.

Alright, so let's see now.
I agree with what you are saying. I am sure everyone else who's visited you agreed too.

So you're threatening us with your last line, on what exactly? :P

there are exactly two kinds of battles ..
One the battle for life,
the other for pride.

Some tend to call it pride, ego - the desire to be more right than wrong, more meaningful than other, more purposeful than other ..

Egolessness is possible only when there exactly one optimal path or solution to all the life's problems. - is it?

@babe: hello dude. How truly. Spoken like a prodigy. How about greed? The greed to own all and know all? The greed for power? the greed for knowledge? How about just pleasure? for women?
